If I want to get into a good college, I need good SAT/ACT scores to show; if I want to apply for a job, I need a crisp resume; if I want to volunteer in my kids school, I need to fill forms, provide TB test results, fingerprint; I can go on...but, if I am standing for a public office - what do I need to tell the voters...nothing is particular. I can paint whatever picture I want, depending on how much is there in my pocket or how much I can raise.
Right now both the parties are spending millions, yet, the information that is truly relevant to us, is not there. It is one candidate's words against another. Most of us are analytical, we like to see past data, comparisons in order to make informed decisions.
Will it be too hard to achieve - a form of some sorts (e.g https://docs.google.com/...) that ALL the applicants to public office that are standing in an election fill and make it public. Constituents come up with this forms depending on the district/issues etc.
It seems pretty straight forward thing to do to me. So, tired of non stop blah blah going on from both sides. Those of you who are good at politics, can you please make this happen?
